This is a fantastic book , and beautifully read on the CD version (though the library CD is very damaged and should be replaced!). It was a total "page turner" (though I listened to it), full of intrigue and suspense. What a life! This book really enlightens as to the Middle Ages, too, and how Europe was governed. The book doesn't discuss it, but it also made me understand more the Age of Exploration which came shortly after. It was no wonder that the European explorers were hungry for territory and conquered the new lands so brutally - that is how things worked in Europe, after all!
Great read.
